On What Happened When I Tried to Read a Whole Book

@wearitcounts This has made watching movies in the theater nearly unbearable! I have to know who that actor is, but because I try to be a civilized member of society, I refrain from checking IMDB on my phone. But that doesn't stop me thinking about it and then missing the next scene. Which I then can't rewind because I'm at the movies and not in front of my tv. I have a problem.

On And I Wear Colored Contacts

@Smallison After wearing sandals yesterday for the first time this year I fell when I stood up out of bed this morning (feet were sore in an unexpected way). So I don't even need to be wearing the shoes for them to make me fall.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@bonnbee I had that poster over my bed in college - it was very inspirational!

ETA: Wait that sounds wrong - inspirational for writing papers - not for bed related things.

On Quirks: Is Their Ignorance Our Bliss?

@Alexander I am such a hand talker that once, while sitting on my hands on the kitchen counter I ended up talking with my feet. I must move while talking so that you will pay attention to me.

On Ask a Clean Person: Tackling a Major Clean-up, Part One

@The Lady of Shalott I make my bed every day because of the spiders (and all bugs for that matter). I don't care how it looks but this way the bugs don't have an open invitation.

On The Best Time I Almost Joined a Cult

@DickensianCat I was just this past week trying to remember what this particular cult was called. About 13 years ago I was encouraged (read: required) to go to one of Landmark's seminars by my employer(!?). Needless to say I left the company within a few months of that experience.

On Insecurity and Awkward Encounters (Cats, Colds, Etc.)

@ormaisonogrande My middle name is Beth, and when I was little my dad used to sing to me FirstName Beth, Marie, Marie - so I got two of the top four!
